This initiative is 100% complete legalization of marijuana, unlike the phony baloney Safer Arizona initiative. It forbids the government from taxing or regulating marijuana. It gives complete, automatic pardons to anyone convicted of a marijuana crime, civilly punishes government employees who violate a person marijuana rights, forbids extraditing for marijuana crimes, forbids the government from discriminating against marijuana users and requires the courts to accept cases involving marijuana.

Bobcats, mountain lions, lynx, jaguars and ocelots, defined in this measure as "wild cats," have significant ecological value and these vulnerable animals should be shielded from trophy hunters looking to kill them for their heads or fur. This measure protects these species by prohibiting needless killing and injuring of wild cats by shooting, trapping, using packs of hounds, or other inhumane methods. The measure authorizes exceptions for killing wild cats that threaten personal safety, property, or livestock. The measure also allows for conservation activities by researchers, zoos, and rehabilitation facilities.

Leonard Clark, Applicant and Chair
Deborah O'Dowd, Treasurer

AZ. governor Doug Ducey of Arizona has violated the very spirit of Arizona's Progressive and Democratic constitution by his signing of h.b. 2404 into law an anti-Democracy initiative measure which takes away the will of the people. He has therefore shown complete and utter disdain for our founders and its western Democratic traditions.
Gov. Ducey has also arm twisted the Legislature into passing a theocratic measure which would use our public tax dollars to indoctrinate favored religions into school children and therefore violate certain provisions of the U.S. constitution such as the 14th amend. and Establishment clauses. Doug Ducey this is your indictment by the people of AZ!
